google. innovation has always been on my mind. i've assumed this was an area where america remained head and shoulders above the world. that's where our future lies, how we'll move up the value chain and reuate new jobs for the future. over the last few months i've been having second thoughts. i've been reading these new studies that use not polls of experts but hard data and they suggest that america's lead is slipping. in fact, one of them looks at the degree to which countries are adjusting and improving their research technology and regulatory policies to stay competitive. and it finds that the united states has made the least progress of the 36 nations in four regions studied. you can go to our website for the actual studies. consider the three most important technologies in alternative energy that are likely to yield big payoffs -- solar, wind and battery power. america doesn't measure up to asia in any of the three. take solar energy. japan and china each have three of the top ten companies in that field. america has only two. let's be clear. america still dominates the world of i
continent of america? a species of owls. except for antarctica. >> larry: don't tell me an owl. >> an owl, exactly. let me show you something, larry. people ask, why does he turn his head that way. the eyes are so big. i was going to say if i see pretty girl, you can take your eyes without moving your head, right. the owl, he cannot do that. with his eye socket, he cannot turn his eyes. isn't that amazing? the ears are not up here like the little tufts are. the ears are faced like this, like a cup. so this owl -- neither one of them -- they like insects. this owl, that likes the insects, too. this owl, if he's out for a mouse or rat in this room, he can hunt in that location without seeing it. that's why they call it the wise old owl because of its senses. its brain, larry, is very small. how much do you think an owl weighs? >> larry: 35 pounds. >> you hear that? i'm not laughing at you. >> larry: yes, you are. what does it weigh? >> only two pounds. it's all feathers and hollow bones. can you imagine this? >> larry: my goodness. >> look at this, larry, it just disappears inside. >> larry
malpractice with we're doing. the problem with health care in america is it just costs more. why would we want to go and fix the problems in health care not the symptoms that all of the politicians play around with? but the real problems. >> answer that one point. he says it doesn't do anything to control the costs? >> it doesn't do enough to control the costs. we have to address the cost containment. i'm very concerned about that. i think the effort on prevention, early detection, wellness, the work force development for more primary care physicians, those will all be helpful in reducing the costs of health care. >> ask the question, why do we have an imbalance in primary care physicians? why is it? does anybody know? because we pay them 300% lower than we pay the specialists. we don't do anything in that. we're going to help pay for some of their education. we do nothing to change that balance. that's a disaster that's been caused by medicare setting the prices. >> i want to bring the question to you congress wim, the differences between the house and the senate bills. over how to pay for th
want you to listen. >> we liberated more than 25 million afghans. now america and our 25 nato allies and 17 partner nations are standing with the afghan people as they defend their free society. the enemy is determined. the terrain is harsh and the battle is difficult, but our coalition will stay in this fight. we will not let the taliban or al qaeda return to power, and afghanistan will never again be a safe haven for terrorists. >> president bush acknowledged then that the incoming administration faced a volatile situations in several hot spots, especially along afghanistan's border with pakistan. well, for more than 20 years he endured a private hell. doctors thought he was in a coma, but he was cautioonscious along unable to speak and now he tells cnn about his nightmare. as seven suspects are charged with a terror incident in mumbai, last year's terror attacks could have been worse. meet one man who might have served thousands of train travelers that day. >>> and is it a bird or a plane? well, no, some say it's a rocket man trying to do what no other man trying to do what no oth
to a vote. it's another thing to say to america basically, i'm not going to let this come to a vote. i have my own reasons here for this so i'm just not going to let it come to the floor. if i were harry reid, i'm not, but if i were harry reid, i would call his bluff. i would call republicans' bluff. let's show america what these people are all about. let them stand there day after day in the well of the senate reading the phone book doing whatever it would be, anything but it have a vote here. show that on national television every night and let's see how the american people feel about it. >> i agree, ned lamont, i always held it against you. you went up to maine about three weeks and took a vacation. you're such a yankee. you had to go to maine for a couple of weeks. look, let's get to this question would you be -- >> chris, i'm so sorry about the philadelphia phillies. >> i knew you had to do that. ron raised a good point. why don't we do it like "mr. smith goes to washington." why don't we bring in the beds and go to the mattresses literally okay, republicans and joe lieberman, if you w
. think about this. finally people in america, if your kid gets sick, you're not going to be thrown off your health care coverage. if you've got a kid you want to keep on your health care coverage when they're in college until they're 26 years old, they can stay on your own family's health care coverage. you have all kinds of prevention provisions in there that really bring us to looking at health and not just health care and health insurance down the road. so i think the $127 billion saving on the deficit, you might says that's a conserve-a-dem issue. i think it should be for everyone in the country we finally have a bill that will save that much. we have a problem in this country that we've been able to put together a health care bill that brings us closer to bringing down the cost for health care, that will allow american companies to compete with companies in other countries, that allow small businesses who pay 20% more for their health care to finally be able to get some leverage so they can less expensive health care? that's what this bill is about. >> i didn't mean to imply that
's unemployment rate will stay elevated for years. >> oh, my goodness, this is just bad news for america. >> it does, especially after yesterday's news about the real unemployment rate. in october, the figure hit 10th.2%, a 26-year high. >> we talked about how it's going to affect the elections in 2010 around here because we talk about politics, but this recession may affect the 2012 election and the 2014 election. when we talk about, mort, that we've reset the economy, that we're not going to be driven by just crazed consumerism, that means something. we either start building things here in this country again, or this economy doesn't turn around, and people don't get back to work. and maybe, just maybe one day washington politicians will start focusing on that. >> you know what it brings forward too is a really dysfunctional political system to address these issues. they put together a stimulus program, and so much of it goes to pet projects of the individual congressmen and senators and so much of it gets dislieutenanted. it doesn't really focus in on the problem. here we are a year la
